Munchkin and I are here in lovely Canada!
The trip was . . . interesting. I forgot that we would have to clear Customs once we crossed the border. Unfortunately, that was during my layover. My very short layover.
Note to self . . . next time I come to Canada, make sure to either a) get a long layover if my first stop is Vancouver, or b) make Edmonton my initial crossing of the border, so I don't have to worry about making my next flight.
Our flight into Vancouver was about 20 minutes late. Our layover was shorter than I thought. I thought initially that qw had a three hour layover. We only had about an hour and a half. Plus, with international flights, they don't automatically ship your luggage to the next flight. You have to get it, and bring it with you to the next boarding area. So, essentially, I had about 40 minutes to clear Customs, get our baggage, clear Customs AGAIN (yes, there's two checkpoints), then go through the whole security checkpoint again, then board the plane. IN-FREAKING-SANE. Oh, and I had no idea I was supposed to bring a note from hubby saying it was okay to bring Munchkin across the border. Oops.
But, we made it.
Dani met us at the airport, and we've just relaxed since then. Other than a slight run-in with a very idiotic Subway sandwich maker (do NOT question me when I tell you what I want, bitch), I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far.
Munchkin is an absolute dream! She stuck right with me at the airports, and when we needed to rush, she rushed right along beside me. She never complained, and took everything in stride.
Dani is beautiful, naturally. She looks fantastic, and Mr. IT is just as sweet and nice as she's described him on her blog. Wonderful couple.
We're hoping the baby shows up while I'm here. The doctor set her induce-date to October 5th, which is 3 days after we leave. Grrrr. However, she is first in line to be bumped up, if someone else goes into labor without having to be induced.
Keep your fingers crossed, everyone!
